Goldilocks government? Not too big not too small (Federal Trust)

14/12/2021, 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Webinar hosted by the Federal Trust for Education & Research.

The 20th century saw governmental expenditure in the developed world grow from about 10% of GDP to somewhere between a third and half of GDP.  Now the pandemic, the climate crisis and ageing populations are creating the conditions for a fresh expansion. Or are they?

Senior Research Fellow Professor Colin  Talbot will be discussing the “Goldilocks Government framework,” an analysis to try to understand what has, and what might, happen to the size of Governments over the long term. This well-established framework seems increasingly relevant for policy and political debates about the future of liberal-social democratic capitalist societies.
